The Highlys is a Reggae band based in north-east London, led by John Blood who finally decided to start a band in 2010 after years of writing and playing solo gigs. Coming together through friendships, musical acquaintances and gumtree, the band quickly got a feel for the positive messages from John's social commentary on issues at home and abroad. The years of practice and being together has created and perfected a sound that only a musical family could come up with. Bringing soul, gospel, blues and West-African influences to John's raw reggae vocals helped the music to grow and evolve. And now, we're ready to show the world our sound.
